21. Relationship between machinability index and in-process parameters during orthogonal cutting of steels
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Eric Paul Whitenton, Iban Arriola, Jarred Heigel, Pedro Arrazola
Abstract: Temperature and plastic strain maps were obtained during orthogonal cutting of two AISI 4140 steels with different machinability indexes using a high-speed dual-spectrum (visible and infrared) and visible spectrum cameras, respectively. Surface and i ...

22. Ontological Behavior Modeling
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/20/2011
Authors: Conrad E Bock, James Odell
Abstract: This article gives an example of improving the effectiveness of behavior modeling languages using ontological techniques. The techniques are applied to behaviors in the Unified Modeling Language (UML), using the logical meanings for classification in ...

23. New Capabilities for Process and Interaction Modeling in BPMN 2
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 1/5/2011
Authors: Stephen White, Conrad E Bock
Abstract: This paper provides a high-level introduction to new features in processes and interaction diagrams in the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) Version 2.0. BPMN 2.0 expands the capabilities of BPMN 1.x Process and Collaboration diagrams, a ...

24. Lessons Learned in Evaluating DARPA Advanced Military Technologies
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Brian A Weiss, Michelle Potts Steves
Abstract: For the past six years, personnel from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have served as the Independent Evaluation Team (IET) for two major DARPA programs. DARPA ASSIST (Advanced Soldier Sensor Information System and Technolog ...

25. The Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) Framework: Producing Evaluation Blueprints to Test Emerging, Advanced, and Intelligent Systems
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 9/30/2010
Authors: Brian A Weiss, Linda C. Schmidt
Abstract: This paper introduces the Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) framework whose objective is to take uncertain input data and automatically output comprehensive evaluation blueprints complete with targeted evaluation elements. MRED is unique in ...

Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/5/2010
Authors: Brian A Weiss, Linda C. Schmidt, Harry A. Scott, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: As new technologies are developed and mature, it becomes extremely important to provide both formative and summative assessments on their performance. Performance assessment events range in form from a few simple tests of key elements of the technolo ...

27. Carbon Weight Analysis for Machining Operation and Allocation for Redesign
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7560
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 12/16/2009
Authors: Gaurav Ameta, Mahesh Mani, Rachuri Rachuri, Kevin W Lyons, Shaw C Feng, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: The objective of this research is to explore and develop a new methodology for computing carbon weight (CW) - often referred to as carbon footprint, in manufacturing processes from the part level to assembly level. In this initial study we focused on ...

28. The Impact of Scenario Development on the Performance of Speech Translation Systems Prescribed by the SCORE Framework
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 9/25/2009
Authors: Brian A Weiss, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Spoken Language Communication and Translation for Tactical Use (TRANSTAC) program is a focused advanced technology research and development program. The intent of the TRANSTAC program is to ...

29. Dynamic Properties for Modeling and Simulation of Machining: An Update of Results from the NIST Pulse-Heated Kolsky Bar
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/7/2009
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak
Abstract: The NIST Pulse-Heated Kolsky Bar Laboratory has been developed for the measure-ment of dynamic properties of metals, primarily for application to the study of high-speed machining processes. Because the work material in these processes can be subject ...

30. A Factory-Wide EDA Data Quality Performance Simulation for APC Capabilities Analysis
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Xiao Zhu, Dhananjay Anand, Sulaiman Hussain, YaShian Li-Baboud, James Moyne
Abstract: Realizing benefits from real-time process control requires in-situ monitoring of process environment, equipment, and the wafer to maximize opportunities for process improvement and minimizing effects of process deviations. The data gathered from the ...
